3. I was asked this question in late December 2020

What would happen if TFG were successful in overturning the election results and was able to stay in power. I said at that time, and I still think this would be true if Republicants did this in the future, there would be major economic ramifications the likes this country has not seen since the blockade of Confederate states during the Civil War. Such sanctions could and would likely include product embargoes similar to those imposed on South Africa during the 1980s as a response to Apartheid. Many countries, including close allies, would most likely cease buying and in fact might just dump US Treasury bills on the open market. This one action would crash the US economy in short order.

The statement "Banana Republic Wannabees don't get a triple AAA" is spot on.
